Notes about working with TFS from distance office

Working from distance office where the TFS Server is not next-to-you is what I am in! What is so important about it? Well you need to step in the water to know if it is cold/hot, isn’t it?

Here are my notes:

  1. Working with the work-items is extremely annoyed – every time I select an item, there’s a delay 0f 0.5 seconds reading something in the background; even worse, the connection to TFS keeps disconnected. Must say, very very annoyed since any single simple task can consume you more time than you expected.

How to make the OS auto map a domain name to an IP?

TFS file-comparing tool so boring!

If you ever heard-of or used  WinMerge like me, you will find TFS’s tool to compare/merge files is very boring! With TFS’s tool, it only tells you a line is changed but not providing which parts of the line are changed – this is quite inconvenient for us when the line is long!

So, it would be nice to have WinMerge take the comparing job! Here are how:

  1. Detail of the setting :
  2. Quick view to get it work right-away:

In general, you config the file-comparing tool for TFS by going to menu Tool – Option – Source Control – VS TFS – Config User Tool… and follow the UI there to set it up. Note to use the setting mention above for a comfortable usage experience.
